    Pros

    - Great projects: Assoiates drive the problem-solving, which means they get more experience faster than other firms
    - Senior level exposure
    - Lots of feedback, so you will learn
    - Great knowledge management system - a goldmine of information
    - Strong alumni network, which will help for years to come

    Cons

    - "Client, Firm, You" ... in that order (i.e., you come last) :-)
    - Work-life balance is non-existent
    - Takes longer to become partner, and make the big money, than you might expect

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate to stay desirable and relevant to the top talent that make the Firm great.

    Pros

    Challenging work environment where you're surrounded by smart, motivated people and working on issues that are redefining companies and industries. As a research analyst, you get to see how different companies are facing similar challenges. You get a unique perspective on the industry.

    Cons

    The company has an always-on, type-A culture. The line between work and life is blurred because for many of your colleagues, they are one and the same thing.
